Given the choice to begin the day with French toast sticks, a truffle pizza pie, and DIY prosecco bar, would you take it? If only all decisions were this easy. Come Saturday, Feb. 16th, you can put these words into action, when acclaimed Italian spot Sotto 13 launches their new weekend brunch menu.
At Sotto, nothing is taken lightly; not the flavor, the décor, the alcohol content of the cocktails. This West Village restaurant welcomes you with its earthy green walls, atrium, creamy eggs benedict, and raspberry-white-peach-bellinis. I had the chance to preview the new brunch menu last night, and let’s just say I walked out tipsy, full, and – the morning after – still full but oddly craving their signature olive oil-salt chocolate ganache. This is so weird.
But I’m taking it in stride, because some meals are worth it. Where else can you have an all-you-can-drink $25 brunch and DIY prosecco bar? And where else can you feel nine-years-old again and dip French toast sticks into maple syrup and fresh berry compote?
So between now and the 16th, go ahead; while away this weekend’s brunch over another restaurant’s standard scrambled eggs and mimosas. But come next Saturday… it’s Sotto time.
